Right in the heart of the capital of Brittany is the old city centre of Rennes. A comfortable journey by train from St Malo and a quick trip on the Rennes metro and out you pop in a completely different time.
If you want to spend a few delightful hours wandering amongst the wattle and daub buildings of a bygone age where people built to fit the timber rather than the opposite then Rennes is for you. Still all being used, these buildings are amazing in their wonderful wonkiness and startling with their vivid paint.
I had what undoubtedly was the most delicious filled baguette I have had in my entire life there too.
Hope you enjoy this gallery of buildings that I photographed from ancient Rennes.
